In the second part of our conversation with Corinne Jones, we take a deeper
look into her practice including the dichotomy of her family
background, how painting is the sun, the importance of color and
equiluminance in her work, the mysterious richness of The Lost Sea as a conceptual lens,
the ethos of punk rock and the underground throughout the years,
using quasi-public space as a site for making, and the
philosophical legacy of the Allegory of the Cave.
Corinne Jones lives and works in New York City. The Long Delayed Echo, 2011 - present, is the umbrella title for her interrelated series of work that includes paintings, interventions, video and writing. Her most recent work, Counterpart Sevens, 2017, are seven-sided diptychs comprised of subtle equiluminant color installed crosswise from each other. Corinne Jones has exhibited solo shows in New York City, NY and Memphis, TN and has participated in various group shows including galleries and museums in Miami, FL, London, UK, and Warsaw, Poland. She earned a BFA from School of Visual Arts in 1996 and an MFA from Columbia University in 2007. Jones has taught at Columbia University and is currently teaching at The Cooper Union.
